In 1968, Richard Nixon used the recent social and political chaos to win the presidency with only 43.4% of the popular vote. Four years later, he hoped to win in a landslide. Could the Democrats’ new primary system produce a suitable opponent? Was the vice presidential choice the most important factor??
Uhh, good luck, Democrats! I can't imagine how they will overcome the fired up base that William Henry Harrison built, especially after he cleans up the mess Van Buren left him. He will surely have the most successful presidential term ever! 1844, here we come!
